Behind The Lens

Location
The photo was taken during the flowering in Provence in one of the most beautiful fields of the entire flowering. The model is a girl found casually on the spot that I convinced her to be my model.
Time
The photo was taken at 6 pm on 6 July 2018 when the sun was just starting to fall but still had a considerable light strength.
Lighting
I did not use any kind of artificial light. I only looked for the moment when the umbrella was strongly illuminated by the sun to reacquire the plot. The use of a focal zoom helped to make the photo nicely flat
Equipment
The shot was made freehand. I used my Nikon D850 with Nikkor 70-200 (focal 170) iso-500; 1/5000 f / 2.8 below exposed by 0.7 stops.
Inspiration
The inspiration came from the beautiful contrast of the white dress worn by the model and the colors of lavender. I love the lines in the photos. That's why I placed the camera vertically to give perspective to the photo taken.
Editing
I have normally developed the raw file with raw camera in Photoshop. I then increased (always with Ps) slightly the brightness around the model. I then finished the post production with the "curves" tool. Nothing more.
In my camera bag
Normally in my backpack there are two camera bodies composed of Nikon D5 and D850 in addition to the three basic objectives of the Nikon kit: 14-24; 24-70; 70-200. Normalment eporto with me also and 85 f / 1.4 and tripod
Feedback
There are thousands of photos of lavender flowers. For this, as for others, I tried to achieve something that distinguished itself from the normal. Human presence (if well managed) gives a particular touch to the photo, differentiating it from other beautiful (but perhaps banal) shots.
